I wouldn't recommend the sword because they tend to get huge. Not sure if blyxa and baby tears need high light or not.

Okay, thanks for letting me know! lol

I have a 5 gallon so space is limited. But I've been thinking about upgrading to a 10 gallon.

Yay shrimpies!

I highly recommend dwarf water lettuce -- shrimpies and bettas like to hang out in the roots.

Prana (deep blue/purple CT female) Fluval Spec 2

Qi (turquoise CT female) 5 g riparium

Vanilla Beast (Ivory apple snail diffusa), Watson and Crick (Amano shrimp), Tributary (Moss Ball aka AquaTribble) Fluval Spec V

Pond and ramshorn snails (so many!) 2.5 g

Mr. And Mrs. Smith (assassin snails) 0.5 QT tank

Leopard ramshorns 16oz NPT Mason Jar

Thanks for letting me know Aokashi.


I have bad news :/

From not having enough plants for him to hide, Ciroc murdered Blinky RIP Shrimpie :C

I should have took them out, but good thing they are 34 cents.

Lol yeah. I should have known. At first I thought it would have been okay but nope. I'm not sure where the other one is(pinky)

I went to jeff feed today to get some plants but they didn't have much. I got sone java moss(last little bit!) And an amazon sword. I know star said they tend to get huge but I seen it and really liked it a lot so I've made the decision to upgrade to a 10 gallon!
I'll probably do it next week.

What kind of tank mates would you recommend for a 10 gal?
I'm not going to get any all at once though and if none work out I know a few people that might adopt and if not I'm sure someone here would love to!

Also, for the sword, can I keep it in the vase/cup and bury it or should I take it out?


P.s. I know for sure they don't have any hitch hikers

Yeah, I have an idea for a hide out they would love!
Ciroc lost interest in the glass vase I have in there and right now I have the survivor in the little glass jar with some java moss so I thought about it and realized I could put some java moss in the vase! Enough for about 3 or 4 and enough so ciroc can't get to them.
Would 3 or 4 be okay? Is like to get a snail but I'm not sure which kind. I really like the malaysian trumpets and zebras!

It might work XD it also sounds like an interesting idea.
I really dont recommend keeping the sword in a vase/jar unless it is large enough to accomodate some water flow :)

back to the shrimp cover thing...My shrimp cover's the jungle to the right in this picture
